If The Clash and Nirvana are your reference points for punk rock then you have a lot to learn about the genre.

I was actually going to say that The Replacements, Minutemen, and Husker Du were bands that ruled (for me) in the '80s (labels notwithstanding), but thanks for the input. Now, if you want to go back to the '70s . . .

I've always thought that A Quick One was better and more concise than the bloated excess that was Tommy. Then again, I didn't sit around in junior high upon it immediate relase with my lava lamp, shag carpet, and black light posters to catch it's deep import - but, then again, neither did Koch.

There was one act that emerged out of the sesspool that was CBGBs in the late 70s that had a modicum of artistic and musical acumen, you know of whom i speak.

In terms of my knowledge of the genre, i know enough to know that 99% of it is musically uninteresting.

Have you seen them since they re-formed? If so, any good?
Great, great band.
